Drexel University Student Ambassadors

Why Join?

Drexel Student Ambassadors are among the most enthusiastic, involved, and passionate members of the Drexel community. This is a paid campus position, and in order to ensure that the Drexel University Student Ambassador Program maintains its high standard of service, students interested in joining the program are asked to complete and submit the Student Ambassador Application. Selected applicants will be invited to an interview. If offered to become a Student Ambassador, students will need to successfully complete the necessary program training and background check process to become paid student employees. This opportunity to support the future of Drexel is paired with professional development and training that will equip you to represent the University at events, on social media, and more.
